Schell is stressing the impor- tance of an endowment - the first of its kind in the show's his- tory - to cover operating costs of the complex. Even with a solar system to keep electrical costs to a bare minimum, there will still be other utility expenses. With a goal of $300,000, Schell said, another $125,000 is needed. "We have to reach the goal by re- veal day so it can be used on the show. If we do it, it's the most money ever raised by a commu- nity." He said all donors of at least $500 would be recognized in full-page advertisements in the Cape Gazette. "We need some people to step up with large amounts," Schell said. To inspire people to donate, Schell Brothers will match total donations Up to $20,000 if the donations are received by Friday, Aug. 26.

Although most of the byway is within Lewes city limits, some lies in areas of unincorporated Sussex County. She said it is important for citi- zens to be involved in develop- ment of the plan, and for the committee to consult and coordi- nate with county officials. "The nice thing about the by- ways program is that people in Lewes are very supportive of it," Van Gilder said. She said the committee is working with a citi- zen focus group discussing the final byway component, Cape Henlopen Drive, and gateway en- trance designs for each byway street. The byway program is de- signed to preserve, enhance and protect scenic vistas and historic landscapes showing the area as some place special, said Mark Chura, executive director of Delaware Greenways, a nonprof- it organization that conserves and protects open space, helps create livable communities and works to preserve scenic land- scapes. The Lewes Scenic and Historic Byway is Delaware's fourth, in- cluding Brandywine Valley Scenic Byway and Red Clay Val- ley Scenic Byway, both in New Castle County, and the Route 9 Coastal Heritage Scenic Byway that stretches from New Castle County to Kent County, south of Dover. Last spring, DelDOT approved Lewes' application to designate a scenic and historic byway. The Federal Highway Admin- istration and DelDOT adminis- ter the state's bywayprogram. The six roads that make up Lewes' byway form a continuous network of land and sea gate- ways to the city. Other projects receiving grants include: $521,000 for envi- ronmental planning for the Garasches Lane project, con- necting Business US 13 to US 13 in Wilmington; $300,000 for bridge construction using inno- vative pre-stressed concrete beams on West Avenue Railroad over Isaac Branch in Wyoming; $271,400 to improve signs and safety indicators along Delaware byways; and $92,339 for assis- tance in planning Hometown Overlay District in Greenville.
